    Lender fees

    The information below is for Retail Lenders and applies to lending prior to 1 April 2020.

    Service Fee

    Lenders are charged a Service Fee of 1.25% p.a. of the principal and interest payments collected on each note. The service fee is deducted from repayments into the lender account. The fee is paid to Harmoney for managing borrower repayments and administering the account on behalf of lenders.

    Service Fees are charged on principal and interest when a loan is prepaid early by the borrower, even when that loan is an on platform re-write.

    NOTE: The Service fee will be replaced by a lender fee on all new lending from 13 June, 2016. All lending prior to 13 June, 2016 will continue to incur the Service Fee.

    Lender Fee (from 13 June, 2016)

    The Lender Fee will apply on all new lending from 13 June 2016. The Lender Fee is charged on gross interest received.

    The Lender Fee is tiered, based on how much principal outstanding a lender has on the Harmoney platform, and lenders will move up and down tiers as that amount changes. The applicable fee is applied on an individual loan basis, and is fixed at the time the lender invests in the loan (it does NOT change over the life of the loan regardless of whether the lender moves up or down tiers).

    Tier Outstanding Principal Lender Fee
    (% of Gross Interest)
    Tier 1 < $10,000 20%
    Tier 2 $10,000 - $49,999 17.5%
    Tier 3 $50,000 + 15%
